"Welcome Fall" by The Cutting Cafe'

Happy Monday!
Did you have a nice weekend? We sure did! Our gorgeous weather just makes it all the better too! I have a fun and inexpensive little project for you today. I used a new printable stamp set from over at The Cutting Cafe' called Welcome Fall.  Isn't that a gorgeous frame? It cost me $1.30! Yeah, I know.....right?  Hello Family Dollar's Clearance basket!  
{I apologize for the glare on the glass in these pictures.  I was having a really hard time snapping these pictures with the lighting in the living room.}

Pin It I started with printing the happy fall directly onto the old book page. Can you see the little leaves to the right of happy?  Then I printed the pumpkin on the orange gingham paper and also some brown and green papers too.  I cut out the green leaves and brown stem and paper pieced them onto the orange pumpkin.
This is a little better with no glare, but it hard to see the pumpkin.  It's so much cuter in real life!
Here's a close up for you.  I used my oval Nesties to cut out the center piece for my project.  I inked the edges of the book page and the orange oval to give it an aged look.
This is our little old farm table sitting in the living room.  I added my fun old bed spring and candy corn, some grapevine pumpkins tied with raffia and and angel kitty to keep them all company.
See my little trick or treat pillows there in the chair.  A very awesome Etsy crafter that I love to shop with made those and I had to have them.  Visit her Etsy shop HERE and if you're like me and can't resist her little beauties, be sure to tell her I said Hi!

Thanks for stopping by to see me today. Please come again really soon, but until then....have a lovely day!  HUGS! :) I'm Linking to:

Love creative! From a distance it actually looks like a cross stitched pumpkin:)


I LOVE IT!!! What a great idea of printing the pumpkin and then cutting out the oval vs. cutting the actual pumpkin. I also love the idea of printing the title on an old book page - FABULOUS!! Have a wonderful week my sweet friend!! BIG HUGS, T
